Great service! Kent was so nice to us! He gave us a local SIM card and a phone to use during the day in case we would need anything, as well as good advice on what to visit and where to eat.
The room (at the back, with private bathroom) was very cosy and different. It had two floors, the beds were upstairs, toilet downstairs and the stairs were quite steep. Probably not to everyone's taste. We loved it. The café is really nice as well, breakfast (not included..) was amazing. great coffee!

I just recently stayed 2 nights at moon tree where I had nothing but exceptional service!!! From the moment I made the booking a received an email from the manager Kent asking the details of my arrival. I was arriving in Penang at around 5am he made sure he was there to welcome me and that that I was able to check in early so I could rest and make the most of the day! I haven't received a welcoming Like this ever, he is probably one of the most helpful, friendly and informative people ever, explained everything inside and out. I think I saw everything I possibly could in 2 days because of the detailed map of all the places I should see!
The building and the room was absolutely charming and really steps back in time, I LOVED the room but as the bed was up a very steep small ladder in might not be for everyone.
The cafe there was also great I only are breakfast but the coffee was was good!
Perfect location, amazing staff! Can't wait to return!!!

Kent the owner was really helpful and truly friendly. He lend us a phone for the time of our stay and shared his favorite places to eat. Other staff was very nice as well.
Free drinking water.
The location is excellent.
The room is basic, as well as the bathroom, but for the price, I don't think you can get much better in Penang.
The room had a window, which is worth mentioning because a lot of hostels offer rooms without windows in Penang. The bed had a mosquito net.
Fan and AC were working well.
Beware that the walls are not complete floor to ceiling, so it is not very private nor very quiet and we could hear other guests at night.
